Abstract

To solve power losses problem appeared on distribution system is to put distributed generation (DG). The use of DG can be the solution improving network ability from decreasing power loss, voltage profile improvements, power quality, also reliability operation. But, research shows that missing precision on DG placement can make the system get bigger loss than the system without DG. So, we need a research and planning before integrating DG to the distribution network. This paper will be using K-means Clustering method which is grouping each bus from loss sensitivity factor (LSF) characteristic operational sight and voltage deviation (dV). Using this method, DG placement for single and multi DG will be the solution repairing value of power loss. The B1 case which became the base case have total 39.2436 kW power loss. After placing single DG until multi DG based on K-means Clustering, the result shows best power loss decreasing for B case become 6.050 kW at 3 DG placing.
